I have always been a fan of fresh green beans. I just figured it was one of those vegetables that most people liked. I was a little shocked when my husband told me that he really didn’t like fresh green beans very much.
When I asked him what he didn’t like about them, he said that he had just never liked the taste. I knew there had to be a way I could get him to eat fresh green beans. When I made this recipe and he said they were very addicting, I knew I had hit a home run! I think I might have convinced him that fresh green beans aren’t so bad after all.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
